Small Orange Lights

You know, the ones on the very side of the headlights, can they be replaced with white LEDs? or be truned off?

Those can easily be coded off.

City Lights are LED. These are positioned in the upper corner of the headlamp. These are always illuminated on US vehicles and do not flash with turn signals.

Turn signals (halogen) can be swapped for Amber or White LEDs

I had mine coded out and then removed them completely when I painted my lights and put rings in.

I read ya... Makes sense if you're going all white with your lights.

I'm one of the few who like the amber and yellow angel eyes.
